Nasty & Stupid

Viciousness [Mona Charen]

I did one of my bi-annual visits to C-SPAN Friday morning. The callers were, as usual, a mix. But the emails that greeted me when I got back to my computer were just foul. I’ve been doing these shows (and others) for almost 15 years and have come in for my share of abuse. But the tone of these letters has taken a definite turn toward nasty and stupid.

There is some of this on the conservative side as well. I hear from liberals that they get disgusting letters too. But one wonders, after a huge Democratic victory last month, is there no sense of magnanimity in victory? No generosity of spirit?

Who am I kidding? The notion of good manners has been trampled almost to death. All we have in its place is sniveling political correctness. What a vulgar age we live in!

This would be the same Mona Charen who wrote:

Useful Idiots: How Liberals Got It Wrong in the Cold War and Still Blame America First

and

Do-Gooders: How Liberals Hurt Those They Claim to Help (and the Rest of Us)

…during the years when the Republicans were in control of the entire government.

Blow it out your ass, Mona.
